Brief description Current efforts in Indigenous affairs to ‘close the gap’ have not succeeded in sustainably improving intercultural communications or social and environmental outcomes, particularly in remote locations. Indigenous knowledge authorities have thought long and hard about these issues. In a longstanding collaboration with Yol?u knowledge authorities, this project will develop a replicable two-ways learning approach to communications to inform cross-cultural collaborations, developing a Yol?u mathematics framework that improves tourists’ understanding of human-environment relationships. The research will examine tourist and Yol?u experience and consider policy implications of a framework that counters ontological separation of people from place.
